Could ebanks turn into pippen

I juSt rewatched lakers vs Denver and was thinking can this kid become something like pippen. For now I like ariza but he seems better then ariza was at the same stage. He's 6'9. Nice midrange and deep range which has room for improvement. Good defense with the tools to be one of the best at his position at it. Of course it's a ling &$#%#&@! because how often does a player end up as good as a top 50 all time player. Pippen was that good when he first came into the NBA but he worked hard and ggot better. This kid has the tools so the question is does he have the drive and work ethic. Chances are higher that he won't be pippen them he will but it's something I just thought about. Plus the fact that Phil coached pippen most of his career

Which is why I said chances

Which is why I said chances are slim. And that it's not a sure thing like sum
on here swear a guy is gonna be a allstar and will start from day one. Another reason I brought it up is because of how many people said how great his potential could be when he was projected top 5.

See the deference in saying I wonder if this guy can be this and saying lance will start and be like Evans or a Randolph will be a allstar one day. Big difference

Not saying he will ever be

Not saying he will ever be pippen but explain Why he can never be pippen since pippen wasn't nothing to write home about when he first came into the NBA

i remeber lookin at a mock

i remeber lookin at a mock from last yr when ebanks was a freshmen, and this site projected as a top7 pick, so his talent is there.... he reminds a lot of rudy gay if he were to maximize his talent

Mmmm. I never thought about

Mmmm. I never thought about Rudy gay. I wonder. Only time will tell. In the mean time I'd be happy wit a lil production from him off the bench. That's realistic unlike. Saying he's gonna start and all star this star that

Hmmm...

Pippen? Never. I see his potential as Trevor Ariza. His range has been very impressive. I hated on this guy a lot, but from what I've seen he clearly has made strides with his jumper and his basketball IQ looks good. Handles are a little shaky and I always thought people overrated him defensively, but the potential is there. Lakers got a steal with him Caracter.

Slow Down now...Let's see

Slow Down now...Let's see something in the regular season against actual NBA players first.

I do think Ebanks could become a good player in the NBA but Scottie Pippen? I don't think so. Only time will tell.

Its Just Summer League, So

Its Just Summer League, So Wait,
But i Do Believe He Could Be good.
I mean, nobody expected pippen to be great,nobody expected kobe to be who he is now.
He Definately Has Potential. But Remember, This is just Summer league
We have to wait a few more years before we make quick decisions
(Even though Devin Ebanks is my favorite player this draft)

What did you mean noone

What did you mean noone expected Pippen to be good?

He was a top 5-8 pick in a draft.

Ok us anyone even reading it

Ok us anyone even reading it or just skimming through it? Just curious. Because alot of people are responding like I said he will be pippen. I'm guessing most who are answering are too young to remember when pippen got to the leauge and was a non factor with no jumper ok handles. I also noticed if you're drafted top 1 or 2 you can compare the player to stars. If not you can't even mention them in the same sentence. Like I said chances are slim he becomes as good as pippen but I remember pippen before he worked his self into a star and no one thought he would become what he did. It's also well known I wasn't high on ebanks either but after watching him I like his natural abilities and it makes me wonder how good he can become if he is a hard worker with a good work ethic

My question would be this If

My question would be this

If Devin Ebanks played for another team would you think the same thing. I think your hoping he becomes a Pippen because he plays for your Lakers. If he played for like Dallas or San Antonio or even Charlotte, you would still have your question marks about him as a player but since he plays for the Lakers, you slightly ignore the weaknesses in Ebanks' game.

That's just my opinion.

Google the kid. Many on here

Google the kid. Many on here said he will be a star and great player. And you said in 2011 he will be very very good. So this is the supossed year.

After watching him play? Yep.

After watching him
play? Yep. Just like I think Austin daye has the potential to be very good. Everyone knows I go by what someone does not who they play for. When we drafted him I said he might get some time because of his defense because what he's shown now I didn't see at wv. And it's not just his stats it's how he does it within the offense and how well he plays even while have alot of room to grow. It's the lil things that make me wonder about this guy. And players that have potential and work hard on defense usually shows that they are hard workers because it takes hard work to be a good defender

Ho is saying he might play

Ho is saying he might play 10-15 min a game ignoring his weakness? If I did that I'd be saying he will start from day one and do this or that. Please read everything I said and not just bits of it before responding

To say can he turn into

To say can he turn into Pippen, I would have to say yes. Is it likely that he will turn into Pippen? I would have to say, it is highly unlikely that he will turn into Pippen (very unlikely). You are talking about one of the 50 greatest players to ever play the game. I am not sold on this draft having anybody that has that type of potential. I think that you would have to ask me this question after the guy has made 5 or 6 all nba 1st teams.

It is to early to ask that question.

You answered your own question. Read the end on my comment: I think that you would have to ask me this question after the guy has made 5 or 6 all nba 1st teams.

ebanks could be a very good

ebanks could be a very good player but he doesnt have the handles or playmaking ability of scottie pippen pippen was a great passer ebanks is a good defender but scottie is one of the best defenders in nba history.

Luke I said before pippen

Luke I said before pippen didn't always have that jumper or handles or great passing ability. He worked on it and got better. Pippen didn't come into the MBA and was automatically a great defender,passer shooter etc

@JNixon-Iggy9 LOL at your

@JNixon-Iggy9

LOL at your first post. I do sense a little hypocritism. During the Orlando summer league with Lance Stephenson, Stanford Hoops was quick to kill the excitment saying, "It's just summer league" lol.

I like what Ebanks is doing though. Looks like a steal.

"This kid has the tools so the question is does he have the drive and work ethic. Chances are higher that he won't be pippen them he will but it's something I just thought about."

im still baffled how some can misread that into thinking im saying he will be or chances are good that he will be..lol...foolish people

He has the tools, but so does

He has the tools, but so does a hundred other guys. It takes hard work and good fortune to become one of the 50 greatest players of all time. Only time will tell. But how can you ask a question and then call someone foolish for giving you an answer? In that situation, I would say the only foolish one, is the person asking the question.

dont know about pippen or

dont know about pippen or not, but kid looks damn good. I know you cant put too much into summer league, but he is outplaying most lottery picks right now. Great stride allows him to get around the court well on both ends. He is finishing with great finesse moves around the basket showing tear drops and finger rools. His 3 stroke looks good. Im very excited about this.

To me he seems like a clone

To me he seems like a clone of Arizia or maybe Tayshawn Prince but I see him stepping in and filling the same role that Arizia did on the 2009 Lakers championship team. He'll get playing time from day 1
